>> to picture those 15-year-old thugs as white boys, white 15-year-olds pounding a 13-year-old back child, is there any doubt but that that would have been the seminal moment in terms of news gathering in our nation this year, coverage on this particular incident was clearly, you know, substandard, inefficient, politically correct and in many, many ways as repulsive as, you know, people who make of race too much? >> i'm totally with geraldo on this, my puerto rican brother from another mother. >> no, no, no. >> i'm puerto rican and irish. anyway, the point is he's hitting the nail on the head. he's not afraid to tell the truth. it's a double standard. if this had been a reverse race situation, forget about it. it would have been all over the place. treat news story like this equally, where there's been a deafening silence.
